Music and Cooperation

(photo courtesy of Microsoft Clipart)

Well, look who decided to drop in. Yes, it's me. My husband and I survived the big graduation party weekend. I honestly don't know how he went to work yesterday. We spent Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, setting everything up. Then Monday was the day to put everything back. It's a full time job. The day was wonderful though. Everything turned out great and everyone seemed to have a good time.

While I was "away," I had a couple of people write me with some ideas they wished me to share with you. As I haven't had time to put together something on my own yet, I thought I would share these with you.

The first article I want to share with you is again about music. Music education seems very popular this summer. The article was sent to me by Janice Sinclair. Ms. Sinclair works for Miller-McCune. There was a publication about the wonder of music and how it can promote cooperation in young children.

I myself enjoy music so much in the classroom--I actually enjoy it everywhere. I thought I would share this with you. Anything that promotes cooperation involving young children is a plus.

You can find the article at

I hope your summer is going along great.

I'll have to check it out when I get a chance- we love music in our household as well! Glad the party was successful.
Off to Target and Aldi- getting ready for a trip to the mountains- Yippee! Take Care, Trish.

When our child sees our interest in anything, they would somehow think that she/he has to do something that would make him/her interest too. Parents are the role model. so we must act as perfect though not, but as long as we could, we will try our best to be a good parent. :)
